OAG Cargo, the market leader for air cargo data solutions, is to provide flight schedules data for the Worldwide Information Network (WIN) – a cloud-based e-communications platform for independent freight forwarders, giving WIN members immediate online access to more than 700,000 direct and connecting flights worldwide.

Under the agreement between OAG Cargo and WIN, the flight schedules data will be available right from within the WIN platform.  

OAG Cargo announced the new partnership on the first day of the 5th WCA Family Conference Week, taking place in Bangkok, Thailand from 7 to 10 March, where the company is participating. Part of WCA Family Conference Week, the networking event has attracted more than 2,400 independent freight forwarders.

Speaking from the show, Executive Vice President of OAG Cargo, Alv Hill, said: “This deal is a significant development for WIN members as it allows small and medium sized freight forwarders to effectively compete with larger companies that have broad access to similar data.

“Our product also saves valuable time through its simplicity and ease in finding the best flight and route for any consignment,” Hill added.

OAG Cargo’s flight schedules data is due to go live on the WIN platform later this year.  John DeBenedette, Worldwide Information Network’s Managing Director said: “Empowering independent forwarders with broad reach in terms of connectivity and the latest tools to enhance their airfreight operations is a priority for WIN in 2013. The addition of OAG flight schedules is an important strategic step towards achieving our goals.”
